Birthday Wishes

OMG! I admit that I am a purse freak! And I love animal print! I had some black crocodile paper in my stash that I was dying to use. This little purse was so much fun because I used lots of my favorite things to make it. It's about as girlie girl as it gets with the red roses, flourishes, ribbon, pearls and bling! I even hand-cut the scallops on the front flap! I added a tiny punched flower to the button closure on the front, then filled in the indention with JudiKins diamond glaze, which turned out really neat. I also dotted Liquid Pearls onto the flourishes to girlie them up a bit! Happy 2nd birthday to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge!

I'm entering Birthday Wishes into the following challenges:
